Who needs pesky fruit flies???? Not Palin!!!

Again, either the McStrange team leaders have been caught giving out frivolous talking points in Palin's speeches, or they fail to do their own research.

Last Friday (24th), when giving her FIRST policy speech she espoused the need for the federal government to fully fund IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act) which would ensure services to children with disabilities. She also cited the need to do more for children with autism.

While claiming that the monies Congress spends on earmarks "is more than the shortfall to fully fund IDEA," but hold on now...it wasn't long before she then laughingly scoffed at "fruit fly research" as having little or no value. Her quote:

.."sometimes these dollars go to projects that have little or nothing to do with the public good. Things like fruit fly research in Paris, France, I kid you not!"

Of course, there were no specifics coming from Palin as to which specific earmarks she was referring, but there is no doubt she is totally in the dark about the scientific research - with fruit flies - that has led to discoveries that have boosted the autism research program at the University of North Carolina.

These discoveries as stated by the School of Medicine at Univ. of NC, made in "Drosophila fruit flies may lead to advances in understanding autism spectrum disorders, as recently, human neurexins have been identified as a genetic risk for autism."

WHAT IS IT WITH ALASKANS?????? A court or a legal body finds a sitting legislator "guilty" of something....and they immediately respond to the media...."I HAVE NOT BEEN CONVICTED" or "THEY HAVE FOUND NOTHING WRONG!!!" Let's see, Palin (after McCain) suggested that Ted Stevens should step down, following his conviction, yet he has this humongous welcome home celebration in Alaska and says "I haven't been convicted!" WTF!?!?! And we remember, the Troopergate decision when Mr. Branchflower released the 263 page decision - ABUSED HER POWERS! I give up - I know these two individuals are not representative of ALL of Alaskans, and I apologize to those nice people, but Palin and Stevens need to get back home - NOW!

And now...Joe the Plumber!!! What the hell is up with this guy??? My husband was a union pipefitter/plumber and I am more than familiar with this trade and the general mentality and political leanings. I have spoken with quite a few of these guys and gals this election season and I would predict that 99% are for Obama. Now, an unlicensed, non-union plumber apparently sees things much differently. This JOE comes along, asks a spontaneous question, where the answer is twisted and distorted to become a "socialist" platform for McWeird and associates. The entire context and point of the conversation was missed upon Joe Wurtzelbacher's introduction to the world. And now, he has hired a publicist. I say, what the hell for? A week from now, you will still be plumbing and no one will want you for anything. Have you (Joe) heard the phrase "flash in the pan?"

Joe the Plumber has actually given this trade a bad name. He was never in a financial position to buy any business, had delinquent taxes of his own (how nice that donations have since covered this debt) - so go back to your toilets, pay your child support, and hopefully your taxes - you are so DONE!
